If there is one player in the NBA you want to have the final shot of a playoff game it’s LeBron James. The Cleveland Cavaliers were granted that opportunity with 1.5 seconds remaining with the game tied 84-84.
LeBron received the in-bound pass and jacked up a shot from nearly three-point distance over Jimmy Butler and hit nothing but net as time expired. James finished with 25 points, 14 rebounds and eight assists in 43:09 on the floor.
Shortly before the winning shot, the Bulls tied the game at 84 after a LeBron offensive foul.
The Cavs needed that win to avoid falling down 3-1 to the Chicago Bulls in their Eastern Conference semifinal series. The series is tied 2-2 heading to Cleveland on Tuesday.
